The yield on the Italian 10-year BTP fell to 0.91% in the beginning of December, the lowest in a week and in line with other European debt instruments, as persisting pandemic fears dented investors’ risk appetite. Incoming infection waves continued to rise across Europe, while various detections of the Omicron variant brought health authorities and governments to discuss further restriction measures. Pessimism regarding further infections and economic recovery led money market participants to consider the ECB deposit rate will no longer be increased in 2022, despite higher inflation readings in the bloc for November.
Historically, the Italy Government Bond 10Y reached an all time high of 14.20 in October of 1992. Italy Government Bond 10Y - data, forecasts, historical chart - was last updated on December of 2021.
